for joining us for the next hour. president obama was in new york city serving damage from hurricane sandy alongside new york governor andrew cuomo and new york city mayor michael bloomberg. in the immediate aftermath of the storm the president spent time in new jersey alongside governor chris christie. mayor bloomberg specifically asked the president to please not come to new york city at that time, so the logistics and security arrangements around his visit wouldn't get in the way of the immediate recovery effort. but now with two weeks or so gone by, the president today announced that he is putting a cabinet official, housing secretary, in charge of the federal level of the rebuilding efforts after the storm. and he made that announcement from hard-hit staten island. >> during difficult times like this, we're reminded that we're bound together. and we have to look out for each other. and a lot of the things that seem important, the petty differences melt away and we focus on what binds us together and that we as americans are going to stand with each other in their hour of need. w

of policy to figure out how to sell and regulate alcohol. would cities do it? would states do it? the federal government? do you need a license to sell alcohol? how old to drink alcohol? states came up with their own answers to those questions, and the laws between the states all these decades later are diverse. today for example 18 states are called control states, which means they control the wholesale and retail sales of alcohol. that's why in a controlled state like utah, the state chooses your wines for you and hopefully we will help you pair them with dinner. maryland is not a control state, but there's one county in the state, montgomery county that does it that way, too. a little taste of utah in the middle of maryland. it isn't just between places that have state stores for booze and states that don't have state stores. i mean, in some places you can buy beer or wine or hard stuff at the rite aid or gas station. in some places you can buy beer at a gags station, but spirits come from a state store that looks like a prison. there are all the different levels of control on
